How to Beat Wall Street at Its Own Game

Most investors believe that Wall Street is rigged in favor of the big traders and that they'll never win.

But you can beat the Street - it all comes down to understanding a principle called "Gambler's Ruin." Here's what you need to know...

Why You Shouldn't Bet on a "Buyout Bailout" for Twitter

After Microsoft announced it was purchasing LinkedIn for $26.2 billion, hopeful investors pushed Twitter stock as high as 4.57% in mid-day trading.

But hope is never a viable investment strategy, and no merger or acquisition is coming to save these shares. Here's why...

This Indicator Has Racked Up Huge Profits for Investors Who Caught It

FOX Business Network host Stuart Varney cut right to the chase recently, asking me within seconds of the market opening:

"What specific strategies can our viewers use to make a lot of money really fast in today's markets?"

"Two things," I replied.

You short the weakest companies – meaning you bet on them going down – and you buy the strongest companies because they've got what's needed to survive turbulent market conditions.

But, today, I want to tell you what I couldn't say on TV.

Right now I'm watching a key technical indicator we've seen only do what it's doing now twice in the past 22 years. What's more, this same indicator has heralded radically different market conditions than most investors expect both times it's appeared.

And some whopping profits for investors who recognized it, too.

Today I want to tell you what "it" is and share a company that's poised for profits as a result.

Here's what you need to know...

This Gun Stock Has Returned 5X the S&P 500 for a Reason You May Not Expect

Buying "what you know" used to be a fundamental underpinning of investment success. Now, it's a recipe for disaster.

As the performance of this gun stock shows, true investing success is all about "knowing" the real numbers.

In fact, understanding this company's fundamentals would have helped you beat the markets five times over...

Two Important Updates on Ekso Bionics Inc. and Consolidated Water Co.

One of Wall Street's cardinal sins is a "set it and forget it" mentality. What I mean by that is there's often a flurry of interest in specific stocks and then… nothing.

That's too bad because the devil, as they say, is always in the details. In that spirit, let's check in on two of our favorite recommendations today: Ekso Bionics and Consolidated Water.

Both, I'm excited to report, remain compelling buys.

Goldman Sachs Wants a "Revolution," so Grab These Shares Now

Goldman Sachs thinks they've spotted an economic anomaly – and they're warning it may force the firm to redefine the nature of capitalism itself.

In a research note, produced by a team of analysts and released earlier this year to clients, the firm highlights the fact that profit margins in the United States and elsewhere are historically high and that they may remain that way for a long time – especially when it comes to companies engaged in mergers, acquisitions, and stock buybacks.

In what may be the ultimate case of the pot calling the kettle black, Goldman says that's not how things are supposed to work.

I can't say I disagree.

Since 2007 we've talked about how today's markets are a completely artificial construct made possible by the Fed's incessant meddling, regulators who were asleep at the switch and who still aren't fully awake, and a completely out-of-control Wall Street machine.

You simply cannot engineer your way out of a crisis caused by too much debt by adding more debt.

Why?

Because it messes with the very relationships Goldman has evidently just latched on to.

Something has to give…

…just make sure it's not your money.

Here's how you can make sure it won't be - and a run-down on two stocks uniquely positioned to make triple-digit gains when this debt-ridden system falls apart...

Rich or Poor, You Can’t Ignore U.S. Treasuries in Today’s Markets

There are a good number of investors who believe that U.S. Treasuries – notes in particular – are bad for you and even worse for your money at the moment.

Why really doesn't matter… rates might rise, deflation, a bond market bubble, there's too much debt… they're riskier than you think, goes the argument.

All of those things are, well… true. Yet, I submit U.S. Treasuries are the one investment you cannot afford to be without at the moment for three reasons.

So grab a cup of joe and let me share something with you that escapes 99% of all investors.

YHOO Stock Still Too Speculative, Here's a Better Opportunity

The YHOO stock price is plummeting today, despite the fact that Verizon's CEO announced interest in acquiring Yahoo.

But the speculation makes YHOO stock dangerous to own, especially in a bear market.

Here's everything you need to know about CEO Marissa Mayer's company if the market continues to sell off...
